Ruder Finn has been presented with the Bosch Asia Pacific Supplier Award 2010/2011 at the Bosch Asia Pacific Supplier Day 2012. The Bosch Asia Pacific Supplier Award is presented every two years to recognize suppliers of the Bosch Group for their superior quality and excellent performance. This year, a total of 15 Bosch Group suppliers from three countries have won the award, including three indirect suppliers.
In August this year, Ruder Finn was certified as one of Bosch’s preferred suppliers which is a major milestone for building up the supplier partnership in Asia Pacific.
Mr. Bin Huang, Vice President of Bosch Corporate Purchasing Asia Pacific, who presented the award to Ruder Finn, said, "As a multinational corporation with large-scale purchases, Bosch always considers our exceptional suppliers as valuable assets and important business partners. At Bosch, we believe that no business success can be achieved without the close relationship and mutual trust established between Bosch and our suppliers. This belief has been fully proven by the partnership between Ruder Finn and Bosch China Corporate."
Catherine Peng, Communication Director of Bosch (China) Investment Ltd., said, "Throughout our partnership of almost two years, the Ruder Finn team has shown deep insights into Bosch China’s business and the industry. With their experience in corporate communications, Ruder Finn works closely with Public Relations Department of Bosch China, and has helped achieve fruitful progress in media relations, leadership positioning and corporate image building."
In 2011 Ruder Finn won the retainer pitch for Bosch China, which included communications for four business units covering Bosch China Corporate, Bosch Diesel System, Bosch Chassis System Control and Bosch Power Tools. Ruder Finn was charged with providing strategic counsel, planning and support, media communications, event organization and business insight. Recently, Ruder Finn has also worked with other Bosch business units.
Paul Yang, General Manager of Ruder Finn Beijing, said, "This is an outstanding achievement and one of the highest recognitions that we can obtain. I am extremely proud of this win as our partnership with Bosch only started two years ago with a few projects before we won the retainer pitch. All this would not have been possible without the dedication and commitment of our team and the trust and cooperation from the Bosch teams."
